2:1 - HSV with last-minute win in Hannover

HSV turn around the North derby at Hannover 96 after trailing 0:1 and win 2-1 in the end thanks to a Königsdörffer goal in injury time - and set a record along the way.

Hamburger SV made history on Friday evening (30 September). In the North derby of the 10th matchday in front of 49,000 spectators in the sold-out Heinz von Heiden Arena, the Rothosen won 2-1 (0-1) at Hannover 96 and set a new record: It was the eighth away win in a row, something that had never happened before in the history of the 2nd division. And this victory came about in dramatic fashion, because the hosts, with the help of HSV, had already taken a 1:0 lead in the 4th minute through Muroya, and the 1:1 equaliser also came about in a curious way when Börner deflected a Heyer cross into his own goal (15th). For the rest of the game, the Reds were unable to force a second goal despite having the advantage and good chances for Glatzel & Co. before Königsdörffer, who had been substituted shortly before, started an unbelievable solo in his own half in injury time, could not be stopped and actually scored the 2-1 winner.

Curious goals ...

HSV coach Tim Walter had to replace his injured winger Dompé in Hannover, Kittel played for him on the left wing, behind him Muheim defended instead of Leibold. But Muheim was anything but lucky at the start of the game, as in the fourth minute of the match the Swiss player slipped in his own possession in the HSV penalty area, giving Hannover's Muroya the early 1:0 lead. However, the visitors quickly shook it off, took the reins against the 96ers, who were mostly a little deeper, and had good opportunities to equalise through Glatzel and Kittel. These did not lead to the hoped-for success, which was then forced after a quarter of an hour: Heyer passed sharply from the right to Glatzel, who was ready to shoot, and 96 centre-back Börner tried to save with his long leg - own goal. With this 1-1 result behind them, the Rothosen became even more dominant in the following period, gaining around 75 per cent possession in the first half hour and in the closing minutes of the first half, Kittel, Glatzel and Muheim, who almost made up for his faux pas in the opening phase with his long-range shot, had several good finishes. In the end, however, the decisive centimetres were missing in each case, so that it went into the break with the intense draw - referee Brych showed four yellow cards in the first period alone.

... and a late winner

After the change of ends, the game became a bit rougher, small incidents disturbed the flow of the game and resulted in fewer goal-scoring opportunities. Immediately after the restart, Glatzel had a double chance before the game went on for about 20 minutes without a serious goal. But then Jatta ran down the right line for the second time in this match and crossed strongly, so that Kittel had the best chance of the second half, but 96-keeper Zieler kept the score at 1-1 in the 65th minute. The game went into the final phase with this draw, in which Hannover continued not to take any big risks, but now managed to keep the match evenly contested, even if they did not create any big chances of their own. The substitute Königsdörffer had one in the 79th minute, who was immediately present and had the 2:1 in his sights twice, but HSV did not seem to be able to score a goal of their own this evening. But: HSV 2022/23 never gives up, and so Königsdörffer shook the bad luck off his boots in injury time just like his opponents, who could not stop his solo from his own half and his outstanding finish past Zieler to make it 2-1. What a finish, what a game, what an evening!
